Key Stage Three Recommended Reading List

Listed below are a range of categories that contain a selection of books suitable for Key Stage 3 students (Year 7-9). These are a mix of old favourites, classics and new titles. They are available for students to borrow from the CHS LRC. The full list can be downloaded on the right hand side of this page.

Many of our books are in the Accelerated Reader (AR) programme and although we encourage students to read books within their book range, we understand that a student might want to challenge their reading and choose a book at a higher level. We have a wide range of genres on offer at varying book levels within the programme. There is also a large selection of titles available in the Short Reads section of the library.

New Accelerated Reader and other book titles are regularly added to the library shelves. To the right of the page, from February 2020, you will find our 'Book of the Week' titles, which will include a short description of the storyline.

You can find more infomation on any of the books or authors mentioned throughout our reading lists at GoodReads.com

NB: If a student wishes to borrow an Upper School Read, parents must email the Librarian, Mrs Parker giving their permission for their child to do so.
